Rejuvenated course ready for racing

Racing returns tomorrow with a bumper eight event card and a fully rejuvenated racing surface.

The Townsville Turf Club has taken advantage of a month long recess to completely renovate the course proper ahead of a busy spring and summer racing calendar.

Work included cutting the track surface right back, scarifying, hollow tining, top dressing and vertidraining followed by a period of growing out and then final preparation.
